Barren County Fiscal Court Jail Committee gets report, discusses hazard pay

GLASGOW — The Barren County Fiscal Court Jail Committee got a good report from jail employees Tuesday afternoon during a regular meeting.

Committee members Billy Houchens, John Benningfield and Gary Gillon met with Jailer Matt Mutter and jail employees Tracy Bellamy and Lloyd Bean Tuesday afternoon after the magistrates had taken recent tours of the jail facility.

They’re not thinking about retirement 25 years down the road.
